Daedalic Entertainment has offered a first proper look at its upcoming The Lord of the Rings: Gollum game in a batch of new screenshots, which also serve as a glimpse at what PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will be capable of when they launch later this year.

In the ten screens, you can check out Gollum himself, who as previously confirmed, won't resemble Andy Serkis' rendition of the J.R.R. Tolkien characters, as the game takes its cue from the books rather than the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies.

As such, Daedalic's Gollum game promises a deeper dive into the lore of Middle-earth, with characters like Legolas' father Thranduil to appear at some point, while playing as the greeny-blue skinned former Hobbit thingy himself, you'll sneak your way around well-known regions like Mordor's Barand-Dur.

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is scheduled for release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC in 2021. Check out the first images from the game below.

I completely forgot that this was a thing. I can't wait to see it in motion.

What's funny is that within 12 months that's when you really see true next gen games.

Launch games won't look that impressive. But once PS5 is about a year old, we will see it's true power.

For a list of "Characters I'd least wanna see a whole 'effin game made out of", I'm pretty sure Gollum would at least contend for the top spot. And I'm speaking about fiction in general, not LOTR, as I'm not really interested in that lore.

It's a great performance by Serkis, but wtf do you people like about Gollum so much (and there's gotta be at least an amount of "like" warranting a whole game)? I'm honestly asking, because I can't understand it AT ALL.
